Burton Albion v Exeter City - score prediction competition

Comments (13)

THE Express & Echo have again teamed up with Exeter City to offer fans a chance to win a signed Grecians shirt as well as a pair of Big Bank tickets to Exeter City's home game against Northampton Town on Saturday, March 2.

All you have to do is predict the correct score from Saturday match away at Burton Albion and, if you guess correctly, you'll be entered into a draw to win two Big Bank tickets to the game against Northampton Town.

Every fan that guesses a correct score from now until the end of the season will also be entered into a draw to win the signed shirt at the end of the campaign.


Game info and betting odds:  After correctly predicting the scoreline for the Exeter City v Accrington game last time out, I'm going for a back-to-back success this week. It won't be easy though as this game looks a lot more difficult to predict. Burton Albion go into the match on great form having not lost in their last five outings and won their last six games at home. However, Exeter City also have an impressive away record this season – winning a record-breaking ten games on the road this season, including six of their last seven. Something has to give. Exeter are not favourites for the match, but I'm going to back them to get a result at the Pirelli Stadium as a feel some of their better away performances have come against the better teams in the division, with victories away at Gillingham and Rochdale. I think Burton have improved since their 3-0 defeat at St James's Park so you can read little into that result, but I think when teams look to attack City it works in their favour as they can break quickly and counter attack.

City to win the match is priced at 2/1 with BetBulter, which beats Ladbrokes odds of 15/8. However, I think with the attacking talent on display a bet for over 2.5 goals might be a good shout. BetButler have that priced at 19/20, beating William Hill's odds of 4/5.

For those of you after a long shot, why not back the actual score. I am going for a 3-2 City win which you can get at 28/1 with BetButler, which is much better than Ladbrokes measly 25/1.

Remember if you chose BetButler as you chosen bookies, you can place your bets at https://exetercity.betbutler.co.uk/#home where every bet helps Exeter City FC.

The Judge's verdict: Burton Albion 2 Exeter City 3.

    Tony1981 & simonlbrown. Unfortunately multiple bets are not allowed. I can see that people's comments are sometimes being repeated so I it might be down to a technical issue. However, you will need to pick one score before kick-off otherwise I will have to disqualify both bets, sorry.
